in The Year's Best Science Fiction: Eighteenth Annual Collection
The world situation (c. 2030) is multiple conventional wars going on around the world. A Hard Takeoff Singularity is imminent. The characters are trying to prevent it. They come from a hyper-advanced timeline. Nearly all timelines with a intelligent AI self-destruct within days as the AI bootstraps itself to godlike IQ, takes over all electronic infrastructure on the Earth, then takes over all biological information processing creatures, then spreads throughout the universe at FTL speeds, then tries to take over all other timelines.
